Hi everyone. I want to say thanks to all of those who have become a follower and to all of those who stop by for a visit. We only need 11 more followers before we have our giveaway. Maybe I need to put a sneak peek of what the prize will be. Maybe next post. lol You will probably notice a decrease in my posts for a little while. My son Joshua is currently serving in the US Army and is stationed in Hawaii. He and his wife Liz and their two boys, Carson & Aiden will be home for a short while in April. We are coordinating a large multi family gathering so everyone will get a chance to visit with them when they are home.
We are also busy preparing for The Crows Corner open house which is Friday, April 30 11:00-6:00 and Saturday, May 1 10:00-2:00. We hope you will be able to stop by our shop, but I will also list items on our selling blog and online store. I will also have pictures of the garden once all the bulb flowers start to bloom.
For our open house we will have many new items. To just give you some ideas, we will have primitive lighting, keeping room pillows, new dolls, homemade lye soap and soap bags (these bags look really neat displayed in your prim kitchen or bath) pin keeps, samplers and Americana items. I am also busy blanket stitching vintage quilt pieces (with a little help from Denise, thanks bunches). We will also have spring florals and wreaths, cement pieces, wood signs, fused glass pieces, unique pillows, new totes and handbags, handmade jewelry, furniture, some handmade wall cabinets, antiques and garden items.
We are also doing some work in the prim garden next to the shop. We are adding a stone walking path. I am happy to report that the Tansy and Thyme from my friend Anita came back this year. Thanks bunches.
I have some daffodils and tulips getting ready to bloom and I think some crocuses. I saw some yarrow peeking through the ground as well as cilantro, sage, oregano, chives and wild garlic. Many of the bulbs and starts came from a neighbor. Her name was Pearl Kimpel and she loved her garden. Her daughter was kind enough to let us have some of the flower bulbs she was so proud of. These flowers are in her memory.
Here is a few pics of the garden. The wooden gate came from a barn that was built by my great grandfather. The fence itself was made from fallen branches. Hubby did such a great job. He really is a good sport. He and my son in law John even found the pieces to build my clothesline. .
So please don't give up on me. Things are just getting a little crazy right now. I will try to post a new pics now and again. Keep checking back and I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Easter.
